Gamers of the PlayStation 2 era will probably remember having some mindless fun with a series called Destroy All Humans! published by THQ. More recently, the games have been remade and published by THQ Nordic, and are just about as much fun as the original. Less prominent, perhaps, was the standalone multiplayer DLC called Destroy All Humans! – Clone Carnage. If you’ve wanted to give it a try but didn’t, now’s your chance, as the game is now free.
For context, Destroy All Humans! – Clone Carnage is a strictly multiplayer addition to the series, supporting up to four players in a game. You also have the option to go about it the old-fashioned way and play it in split-screen co-op. The standalone DLC comes with four modes, six maps, and all the skins from the base game.
Initially, Destroy All Humans! – Clone Carnage was also provided as a bonus for those who pre-ordered Destroy All Humans! 2: Reprobed. But judging from the Steam reviews not many people jumped into the multiplayer DLC, and those who did was left with a game that they cannot really experience. Beyond those who pre-ordered the second game in the series, those who wanted in on this multiplayer DLC would have to fork out RM30. Which would be a hard pill to swallow once they see the “Mostly Negative” review rating on Steam, and read them to find out why.
Which probably explains why Destroy All Humans! – Clone Carnage is now free-to-play on Steam. Without a monetary barrier, people are free to jump in as they please, which would alleviate the major complaint of the game in the first place. It’s a little unfortunate for those who want to try the game on PS4, since the game isn’t completely free. But you can still get it for a now very low price of RM5.
